Since 1970, TRU has taken pride in providing an excellent education to every student who comes to us — from a wide variety of backgrounds and perspectives, at various stages of the learning journey. We serve more than 25,000 students — on our campuses in Kamloops and Williams Lake, and via distance or online courses and programs through Open Learning. From traditional academics to trades, from certificates to graduate degrees, TRU offers over 140 on-campus programs and 50-plus Open Learning programs.

Research, creation and innovation thrive in our open, flexible learning environment. And so do our students.
A demanding program that prepares students to play an important role in the financial industry. Students gain an in-depth knowledge of investments and managerial finance. Many graduates go on to complete a professional designation such as the chartered financial analyst or certified financial planner.
The profession is divided into two main fields. Investments deal with managing savings in the economy by transferring them to individuals and corporations in need of capital in exchange for an appropriate return. The other side of the industry is managerial finance. Professionals here arrange needed financing for an organization’s daily operations and future growth.
